Feel at Home in Mijinkodo Izakaya
[updated August 2022]

A slightly different atmosphere from your usual Izakaya, here they serve homemade snacks and set meals under 850 yen. Moreover, they have monthly and seasonal special menus. The cheese spring rolls are one thing you should not miss. The owner said that she changed the interior into vintage country style so that customers can feel at home when visiting. It feels very ‘Koenji‘ and appropriate for the area its in. They even have a free mini-community newspaper and gallery as well! Customers are also given free handmade postcards as a thank-you gift. You can only find this heartwarming service in Mijinkodo izakaya, 2 minutes walk from Koenji Station south exit.
